It’s a new month and a new season and I (like so many of you out there) LOVE me some Fall! October is my favourite month of the year! I especially love celebrating Hallowe’en and have since I was a little girl!
As we enter into a new month, that means one thing here at Y Beauty – MONTHLY FAVOURITES!
This Monthly Favourites will be a little different as the team at Pro Makeup Coach traveled to Toronto this past weekend and attended IMATS! I wanted to share with all of you my amazing purchases from IMATS and decided to combine both my favourites of last month with a mini IMATS haul!
1. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
This liquid concealer is a DREAM! It is very light but has buildable coverage and it blends in beautifully to the skin! It has a matte finish and when paired with baking (https://www.promakeupcoach.com/baking-101/) there is no creasing or caking! This is a concealer that is comparable to Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (which I also love, BUT I am not a fan of the price!) You can get this concealer here.
2. Oh So Pretty Cosmetics, Liquid Vinyl Lipstick in My Pretty Azizah
OMG this colour! It is the ultimate bright and beautiful pink shade and seriously looks good on EVERYONE! Not only is the colour amazing, but it was also named after my beautiful little niece, Azizah! This liquid lipstick has a creamy application and lasts such a long time! This is definitely a colour to have in your stash for when you really want to stand out and be the center of attention (like Azizah!) You can get My Pretty Azizah here.
3. Herbal Essences, The Sleeker The Butter Smooth & Creamy Hair Milk
I don’t about you, but the ABSOLUTE worst is when you are loving a hair product and then it all of a sudden stops working. This is definitely a curly-haired girl problem! I ventured out to Shopper’s Drug Mart and picked up this Herbal Essences Hair Milk to try and OMG, my hair is loving it! My hair is sooo soft and frizz-free without being crunchy! It also smells really yummy too! You can get this hair milk for yourself here.
4. Buxom Lip Gloss – White Russian
This lip gloss is just a creamy, smooth, super shiny piece of perfection! It provides a little bit of a tingle to provide a plumping effect. It is NOT sticky like many other lip glosses which makes this gloss one of my favourites! It is perfect for everyday as it is a semi-sheer, pale, pinky nude shade. This lip gloss is also amazing because it looks amazing when applied over top of a pinky nude lipstick! This lip gloss does have moisturizing properties and lasts a few hours. You can get White Russian here.
5. Benefit The Pore-fessional – Agent Zero Shine
The name says it all, this is a MUST have if you find your T-zone getting oily throughout the day! I never used to have oily skin but I have noticed lately that I start to shine in the afternoon (and not in a good way!) I tried this powder and was AMAZED with the results! There is ZERO shine and I only need to powder once throughout the day and I am good to go! Also, the packaging is so convenient. It has a built in brush at the bottom which makes it perfect to stick in your purse and use on the go! If you need Agent Zero Shine in your life, you can get one of your own here.
Now that you know all of my favourites for September, here are all the goodies I picked up at IMATS this past weekend! I can’t wait to tell you what I think about all of them!
